Clinical trials to begin on Israeli technology to freeze lung cancer tumors

If this innovative therapy proves out, I sincerely hope that every BDSer in the world will boycott it.  Nocamels reports:

We’ve told you before about IceCure’s amazing tumor-freezing technology that destroys breast tumors by freezing them into ice balls. Now the company has set its sights on another killer – lung cancer. The Israeli biomedical company that pioneered the application of cryoablation (a process which uses extreme cold to freeze and destroy diseased tissue) as a treatment for benign breast tumors (fibroadenomas), intends to expand its technology to the treatment of lung cancer, with a new clinical trial to begin in Japan.

“This study, which is fully funded by the Kameda Medical Center in Japan, may pave the road for IceCure to use its cryoablation technology in lung cancer tumors, in addition to the current commercial applications for the treatment of benign breast tumors and investigational use for small breast cancers,”  said IceCure President and CEO Hezi Himelfarb.

IceCure has received FDA approval for its cryoablation system, IceSense3, to treat fibroadenomas and small malignant breast tumors. The procedure is minimally invasive, takes approximately 15 minutes and requires only local anaesthetic.

Israel has become a world powerhouse of high technology, and not just in information technology.  The obvious and conclusive rebuttal to the BDS movement is the fact that Israel is every day improving the lives of the world’s citizens, and that destroying it would deprive mankind of really useful and beneficial technologies.

I call on all BDS people to resolve not to avail themselves of any technology developed in Israel.  That would already require forgoing quite a few medical and electronic advances.
